Help for the Overwhelmed Homemaker

posted on by

Being a homemaker is a tough job. We daily wear 50 different hats and must work really hard to glorify God in our homemaking.

 ”Homemaking is not employment for slothful, unimaginative, incapable women. It has as much challenge and opportunity  success and failure, growth and expansion, perks and incentives, as any corporate career.” ~ The Christian Homemaker’s Handbook Pg 21

Being a homemaker is a tough job. We daily wear 50 different hats and must work really hard to glorify God in our homemaking. It can be so difficult yet it's also the most important role in our life. We are wives and mothers and God has given us this special responsibility. Are you taking time to grow as a homemaker?

31 Days to Clean by Sarah Mae

31 Days to CleanI’m sure you’ve seen this best selling book around by Sarah Mae. I purchased the book back when it first came out and have loved going through it. Like Sarah Mae, I am not in love with cleaning. I would rather cook the meal then clean the dishes!

Sarah takes you through 31 days, step by step, of how to get more organized and keep it that way!! She provides a lot of encouragement as she is not one of those cleaning gurus but rather someone who knows what its like to loathe cleaning.
